GOSHEN — A woman was taken to IU Health Goshen Hospital on Thursday, May 16, after she was injured in a rollover crash west of the city.

According to a report from the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department, Lindsey Henderson, 25, of Elkhart, was driving east on C.R. 32, west of Old C.R. 17, when she ran off the south side of the roadway, went down a ditch and up an embankment before overturning.

The car landed on its roof and caught on fire in the front yard of 22112 C.R. 32. Henderson had cuts, but she is still being evaluated at the Goshen hospital.

Ron Harrell of Goshen was driving on C.R. 32 when he saw what looked like a ball of fire. Harrell and three others who were passing by at the time stopped and helped Henderson get out of the vehicle.

Harrell said someone cut the seatbelt with a knife and Henderson was able to crawl out of the car. Two others brought fire extinguishers but were unable to stop the fire before firefighters got to the scene. Harrell said Henderson was breathing, though incoherent at times, before she was transported to the hospital.
